• Short Summary

    At the invitation of Greater London Council, a troop of flamenco dancers perform in Holland Park.

  • Description

    Holland Park, West London.

    Manolita and Rafael Aguilar and their troop of flamenco dancers are the first entertainers to take part in the Greater London Council's plan to bring an international flavour to the big city parks.

    L/S of a group of flamenco dancers, male and female, outside a grand house. Low angle shot of a male dancer - probably Rafael Aguilar - doing a castanets dance with two women in blue dresses. Various shots of the three castanets dancers. L/S of the dancers, they are accompanied by a man playing a guitar and more women clicking castanets.

    M/S of Rafael dancing with a woman in a yellow dress and lots of fake tan - probably Manolita. Low angle shot of the whole troop - five women and two men - dancing. Various shots of the ensemble dance. Low angle shot of the guitarist and a man in a Bolero jacket singing a traditional Spanish song.

    C/U of a man playing the piano. Various shots of the flamenco troop dancing - now all wearing co-ordinated black and white costumes. This dance seems to be a modernised version of flamenco dancing.
